Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
Chairs,
Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group members,


The Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group [1] is now closed.

The mission of the group was to develop techniques and resources to
facilitate the evaluation and repair of websites with regard to their
conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and to
facilitate testing across all WAI guidelines and standards also
including the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG), User Agent
Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG), and Accessible Rich Internet
Applications (WAI-ARIA).

We invite former group participants and others with interest in accessibility evaluation and testing to get involved with related efforts in other W3C groups, in particular in the Accessibility Conformance Testing (ACT) Task Force of the W3C Accessibility Guidelines (AG) Working Group:

W3C thanks the group’s Chair, Shadi Abou-Zahra and all the participants
in the group for their efforts.

This announcement follows section 5.2.8 of the Process Document:
